New U.S. Army Regulations on Tattoos


Recommended Posts

Had this topic on a fire arms website a couple weeks ago, this came out then. Really didn't get too much good discussion before the mostly extremist right wing members started getting ridiculous with flaming tattoos and tattooed people and the mods had to close the thread. The only intelligent comment was that this is population control as we don't need nearly as many soldiers right now, but let another war or crisis start and restrictions will become more lax again.

I personally don't care how tattooed someone is, in any profession I'm more concerned with ability.

I never understood this considering the troops are usually covered head to toe in gear when interacting with people on the field.

Designs can come from anywhere. Ink Well’s three tattoo artists can do original work, copy images off the Internet or from photographs or drawings customers bring in, or combine what the customer has in mind with their own ideas.

Sigh...

Even when when in formal dress doing memorial services they are basically covered.

Regardless, tattoos, even 'offensive' ones have zero to do with ones ability to use a rifle or machine gun, or even a cash register, lawn mower, any job.

Senseless waste of time and resources IMO

    • Hey, thanks for your input!    Here's how it's doing now. About 4 weeks now. Definetly not as bad as I thought it would, but not great either. I'll be waiting to get it fixed later in the year. Good thing is it still looks pretty good even if its pretty shit 😂 live and learn!    This guy has done a couple full arm blackouts too so I really dunno what's up.    It's hard to find someone who has much experience doing this type of work where I live.    Have connected with another artist who has also done it and has decent healed pics, and am waiting on her advice too.  Also, for fixing it, do you have to go over the whole thing again, or just the dodgy spots?    How does using different black inks affect it?    Guy wants to touch up in a month or two but yea I don't think my skin will be ready by then lol dya have an instagram I can follow? 🙂
    • just got a message by a friend who send me these thread... I'm a blackwork tattooer...and to be honest it's one of the most difficult technic, cause you have to pack it super solid in large areas, with different "soft/thick" skin...so it's not wondering I'm mostly repairing blackouts... problems like yours can arise for various reasons... could be a voltage/handspeed issue at this area(overworked/traumatized) or he had a "dirty" needle (plasma and vaseline get stuck together with pigment and fills the space between the needles) could also happen it was accidentally touched with dirty hands by a friend/animalnose, got sticked at sleeping(you can't remember)... and i could make the list way longer... WE WON'T FIND OUT ANYMORE... but in the end the crust will switch to scars... sadly there will be no way around... keep it clean and let it heal... If it does not get better in the next few days, you can get cortisone ointment from the pharmacy.   BUT! THE GOOD THING! it can be reworked once the healing is over and the scars are settled down... so you should give it minimum half a year but as i said -IT CAN BE REPAIRED!! For the next time you should consult an artist who is into blackouts    sadly can't post images, so i can't show you how your scars will be looking and how it is looks after reworking a blackout...     So here we go... the first picture will be show how a healed overworked blackout looks like...   second/third was around 3 month after reworking by me...
    • It almost looks like an ingrown hair or something? I don't know. But yeah, I bet it'll clear up before too long.
